Authors Guidelines

General Information

The WMNC 2018 paper submission and review process is being conducted in a manner similar to previous WMNC conferences:

Authors who wish to participate in the conference will create documents consisting of a complete description of their ideas and applicable research results in maximum 8 pages (two-column format).
Papers should be formatted according to the Author Guidelines described here. All papers must be written in English and submitted in PDF format. Paper submissions will be reviewed by experts selected by the conference committee for their demonstrated knowledge of particular topics. The progress and results of the review process will be posted on this website, and authors will also be notified of the review results by email.


Papers should be no longer than 8 pages, including all text, figures, and references. The paper MUST be formatted according to the paper templates given in Microsoft Word or LaTeX.

Papers must be submitted by the deadline date. There will be no exceptions.

Accepted papers MUST be presented at the conference by one of the authors, or, if none of the authors are able to attend, by a qualified surrogate. The presenter MUST register for the conference at one of the non-student rates offered, and MUST register before the deadline given for author registration. Failure to register before the deadline will result in automatic withdrawal of your paper from the conference proceedings and program.
